Beautiful Refrigerator, hate to part with it. Refrigerator side works perfectly. Problem is Freezer, it goes down to -11 degrees, but then comes up to 12 or 15 degrees (and even 56) several times a day, the food thaws and the ice cream gets soft or melts. Because most of the time, everything is working, I tend to rule out the MAIN BOARD, which was just replaced in October by a service technician (for $300 parts and labor) but that was a total different issue were other than the lights, nothing was working. I love your video on changing a MAIN Board, I did watch as the one in Oct was changed. But do you have videos on changing the termistors were ever they are located??.
Other issue, the little plastic spring loaded POSITIVE door latch on the refrigerator side. at the bottom. has broken (as do all plastic things in life) do you sell those items?
Answer Carlo, This parts diagram WR55X10025 has a video attached to it. Of course your refrigerator may not have the same thermistors located in the same area(s)but they are pretty much in the same location on most GE refrigerators. You may also want to check the evaporator fan motor. It is a variable speed motor, and can get stuck in a low speed or not rotate at all, this can cause temp. fluctuations in the temperatures also.
I have a GE side by side refrigerator. My problem started with the freezer going warm and frozen food would thaw then freeze up again the next day. Started happening as the weather got warmer. Now it's not freezing. I have since replaced all 3 thermistors but still freezer remains slightly below 40 and fresh food side around 45. I have checked coils and they are not frozen. Evaporator fan and condenser fan are both running. Compressor is hot and I have cleaned the condenser. Please advise.
Answer Hello Anthony,
If the compressor is hot there is a high probability of a sealed system restriction. This would start giving a problem a little at a time until the unit won't keep food at all. The issue normally takes a filter/drier, the evaporator coil, the heat exchange assembly, (capillary and low side return lines), and sometimes the compressor. Of course the air circulation inside and outside of the unit should be verified first. This includes making sure both fans will start back up to full speed on their own when you stop them physically. If they have to be helped to start back up or gain full speed, the fan motor should be replaced since this will cause temperature issues.
